New Fortune Dim Sum

Chownut | Mar 4, 2007 05:35 PM

Went there again to give them another chance. Once again, nothing to brag about. The shrimp dumplings were soggy, the shrimp crepes were falling apart, the taro cakes were cold, the sieow mai was hard, and the place was dumpy. Nothing else on the carts looked appetizing.

I don't know how they can ask customers to sit on tables that are about to fall apart, and that place needs some serious investment in lighting. The best thing today was that the paper towels in the bathroom were nearby the door, so I didn't have to touch anything after washing my hands. Anyone who wants good dim sum needs to be near Wheaton/Silver Spring or Rosslyn/Falls Church. This place is way over hyped.
